Mandatory Trainings to Counter Sexual Violence

Short training sessions are provided to the INRS community to explain the content of the Policy against Sexual Violence and the context in which the Policy was implemented.

To satisfy the training requirements under the Act to prevent and fight sexual violence in higher education institutions, the 10 member institutions of the Université du Québec (UQ) network pooled their efforts to develop shared training materials. Coordinated by Université du Québec and funded at the network level, the project made remote training available for all members of the university community covered by the act.
